The Financial Times has featured the Genesis Foundation-funded ‘New Plays from Chile’ at the Royal Court Theatre. Five plays have been selected for a series of readings in the week that marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup (11 September 1973) that overthrew Salvador Allende’s democratic government and submerged Chile into what has been called ‘the long dark night’.
